Daily Doodle and Art Projects

The HCH art department have set art challenges and drawing competitions for the holidays. We will be posting the amazing entries here..

Today’s doodle is inspired by Henri Matisse’s Cut-Outs. He called it “drawing with scissors”. Make your own coloured papers or use some wrapping paper to make a scene of your own garden or something else that you can see.
